I used to go to the Belmar as a kid. Saturdays they had 17 cartoons, then a double feature! Fun times!

My sister and I couldn't wait until Saturday to see the great movies at the Highland and Belmar Theaters. One of our favorites was "Knock On Any Door" and one of the lead players was John Derek. Does anyone remember the candy store between these two theaters? I think it was called the Belmar Candy store and possibly had the first soft ice cream in the city. i very slightly remember "The Cameraphone". Does anyone know when they closed?

My Father, Claude Jones was the last owner of the Belmar Theater, in 1969, The last movie to play was, "Midnight Cowboy". I was a kid and worked at The Belmar Movie Theater and put up that last marquee.. My father open the theater with the hopes of keeping a movie theater in the Homewood community. He also serviced as President of the Homewood Brushton Improvement Association..

About 1945: We lived in a house on Formosa Way in back of 613 N. Murtland Ave. Went to the Belmar and Highland theatres in Homewood. Had great memories there because my uncle gave me $.50 cents (a veritable fortune then). My girl friend and I saw a double feature at the Belmar, then went to the Highland and saw another double feature. I had no passing of time; finally I saw some crazy woman (my mother worried out of her mind) going up and down the aisle whispering my name. Boy, was she mad! But we had such a great time. Also bought a ton of candy. Will never forget it.

Many a Saturday there in the 40's. Also the movie show to the left of the Belmar, the Highland???? I remember .11 to get in. To the right of the Belmar sign on the second floor corner is where my dentist office was. No novicane and a lot of pain.
